    Hi guys,

    Got a Phantom 3 Advanced 2 days ago and I'm having some issues with a Galaxy Tab S 10.5 (SM-T800) tablet running Marshmallow 6.0.1:

    1. The compass on my tablet is orientated perfectly in Google Maps and the compass on the P3S is fine too but when I open the app, the bearing in the bottom left corner is out by around 90 degrees. I've used my Samsung Galaxy S5 and it works OK but the app doesn't appear to be marrying up with the tablet properly. Any ideas?

    2. Not sure if this is normal but I've had to adjust my gimbal roll by +1.0 in order to get a level horizon.

    Steps I've performed to orientate the gimbal:

    a) Did a cold IMU calibration
    b) Performed an auto gimbal calibration afterwards

    Repeated the 2 steps above about 3 times.

    I just don't understand why I'd have to force the gimbal roll that much... Any help would be greatly appreciated.
